Cooking shortcakes with cottage cheese:

Step 1: prepare the dough.

If you want to achieve cookies that really melt in your mouth, first grind the sugar in a blender to make icing sugar. Then, in a deep bowl, mix it with the flour sifted through a strainer. Pass the butter through a grater and add to the flour and powdered sugar. Break the egg there, add salt and soda. Mix the dough with dry and clean hands. Try to do it as quickly as possible. Then roll the dough into sausages and wrap them in cling film. In this form, send the cookie blank to the refrigerator on 1 hour.

Step 2: prepare the filling.

While the dough is resting, prepare the curd mass, for this, mash the curd with a fork and mix it with sugar, salt and an egg. Mix the mass well. You can use a blender. Also put it in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes.

Step 3: make cookies.

Remove the sausages from the dough and free them from the film. Cut the dough pieces with a sharp knife into circles. That’s all, this is where the formation of cookies ends.

Step 4: bake cookies.

Lay your blanks on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, and put the curd mass on top of each, it is most convenient for me to do this with a tablespoon. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and bake shortbread cookies with cottage cheese for 20-25 minutes. Let the finished products rest and serve!

Step 5: serve ready-made shortbread cookies with a heap.

Serve cookies as dessert, with unsweetened and aromatic tea or other hot drinks. Enjoy the wonderful taste of crisp and tender cookies that you yourself have prepared.
Enjoy your meal!

Recipe Tips:

- Before cooking, cool the bowl, rolling pin, grater and other kitchen utensils with which you will knead shortcrust pastry.

- You can also not roll the dough into sausages, and after it cools and cools, roll it out with a rolling pin and cut it using a cookie cutter.

- You can also add, for example, raisins or candied fruit to the curd mass.
